Cities of Martian Rails: Botany Bay

Martian Rails (2009), the crayon board game manufactured by Mayfair Games about railroading on the Red Planet in which players build tracks and haul freight, has a long list of interesting cities that players can capitalize on to generate revenue for their rail companies. For example:

Botany Bay -- A medium sized town in the northwest section. It was originally "settled" by prisoners from Russia (Botany Bay Gulag). It has grown into a mining and manufacturing center but it still retains its rough and tumble characteristics.

Martian Rails is loaded with references to Martian SF!
